“Being a painter who no longer paints leaves me open to many different paths” is the way Ted Larsen describes his sculptural process. And indeed his lovely metal works have a painterly feel as much as they do three-dimensional objects. For his latest series of works that make up “Gimcrack” at Pan American Art Projects, […]

The recent works from Rafael Ferrer, in this case painting on paper bags, that will arrive at the David Castillo Gallery this Saturday have been a long time coming. The Puerto Rican native (and incidentally, the younger brother of the 1950s actor Jose Ferrer) began his prolific artistic career with conceptual installations in New York […]

Tatiana Blass’s incredible installation in the latest CIFO exhibit includes about a dozen silver-metal drums and cymbals all set up on white-splashed microcrystalline wax on gray cement floor. Drums, percussion instruments, have always served a dual purpose, as musical components and as tools for communication, yet Blass has created a series where she has made […]

The work and curatorial vision of William Cordova can seem both ubiquitous and elusive at the same time in Miami. The Lima native is an ArtCenter/South Florida alum, an MFA grad from Yale, a 2008 Whitney Biennial participant, an on-again off-again inhabitant of Miami whose work is found in numerous collections and museums. His art […]

The weather behaved so well this year for Art Basel, making the outdoor strolling, brunches and parties easy to enjoy. But there may not have been a better atmosphere than at the “opening” of the Wynwood Walls on a Tuesday night. That may sound strange considering that the founder of the massive mural space, and […]

Good, quality art made a come-back at this year’s Art Basel Miami Beach. That may seem a simple statement, but for several years now, and after the onset of the recession, the fairs have felt a little stale. This year, brand new work from established huge names and unknowns made splashes at famous and little […]

Dina Mitrani Gallery opened up in 2008, with the mission to show photography exclusively. Several other galleries throughout the years dedicated themselves to this art form, but not many. So she has a niche in Miami, and has exhibited both local and national artists, but usually all contemporary. This Art Basel is an exception, as […]
